Even though she grew up playing football, shooting hoops and running races against all the boys in her neighborhood, U.S. 800-meter champion Alysia Montano never wanted to be thought of as one of them.

As a result, she started wearing a flower behind her right ear to remind the boys they were getting beat by a girl.

“The flower to me means strength with femininity. I think that a lot of people say things like you run like a girl. That doesn’t mean you have to run soft or you have to run dainty. It means that you’re strong.”

Qd

What a fucking cool person.

YESSSS

I find this a very interesting read, but as a woman with very large, heavy breasts, I am actually very uncomfortable when NOT wearing a bra. Also, it should be taken into consideration that there was no mention of whether or not these women were wearing a properly fitting bra, which makes a HELL of a difference in the level of comfort you experience while wearing a bra. Also, I think I may do a vlog exploring my thoughts on the issue. What are your guys’ thoughts on this article?

my mom knows im gay but said she'd prefer i just didn't date and sadly enough my fucked up since of loyalty means i haven't.

Like, she’d prefer you didn’t date at all… That’s just… Not cool. Would she react the same if you were straight? Sweetie, why should a preference of hers affect your relationships? That’s sad. Sending you lots of love, dear and I hope you find the courage to make you happy and not just your mum, babe.

piratequeennina: The sad thing about it is, I know I’ll never change his mind, but he asked me a question, I answered him honestly and instead of taking in the information, he just turned on me. It’s one of those don’t ask me something and then get upset at me and throw a fit when I give you an answer when I’m not being accusatory or anything like that moments… :/

In Britain, make-up might have been hard to find, but it was worn with pride and became a symbol of the will to win. ‘Put your best face forward,’ encouraged a 1942 Yadley advertisement in Churchillian tones. ‘War, Woman and Lipstick' ran a celebrated Tangee campaign. Bright red was the favourite wartime colur for lips and nails and lipstick names were often patriotic: Louis Phillippe's Patriotic Red; Fighting Red by Tussy and Grenadier - The new Military red created by Tattoo, effective with air force blue and khaki.

During wartime, a subtle change had taken place in the marketing and the perception of make-up. It was no longer about making a woman seem ‘dainty’, but making her look and feel strong. Rosie the Riveter became a wartime icon in the USA, representing the six million women working in factories for the war effort. [Rockwell] portrayed Rosie as a vast figure in work dungarees, her short sleeves revealing arms the size of prize-winning hams. Behind her hangs the stars and stripes, squashed carelessly under her feet is a copy of Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf, and on her mighty lap rests a lunch box and a huge riveting machine like an enormous gun. [Her] henna red curls, lipsticked mouth and painted finger nails stress her femininity, emphasising the fact that make-up too was a weapon of war [Madeleine Marsh, Compact and Cosmetics: Beauty from the Victorian Times to the Present Day]

Thank you for passing this on!  I’ve actually seen some of the images and a bit of similar discussion in an honors propaganda class back in college years ago (shown actually as an example of propaganda with a positive effect on society), but I hadn’t read this.

mimistarrz: I try, and I just want to try and get him to understand where the division comes from, but sometimes it gets a little frustrating that he refuses to even explain his point of view. :(

kinkyhannibal :: It’s honestly just incredibly disappointing, but what do I expect, when I told him a couple years ago that I was pansexual, he told me I wasn’t and then pretended the conversation never happened….

» No way this just happened

My dad asked about why it is okay for people that are members of a minority to use slurs among themselves. I told him because it’s that group taking the slurs and using them to take the power away from the oppressors. He said that if any person can’t use a word, then no one should. I tried to explain to him that as a member of an oppressive group (he’s a white, heterosexual, cisgendered, conservative, christian man) that he doesn’t get to make those sorts of choices for oppressed groups, and I told him that as such, he’s never had systematic oppression as a part of his life or history. You know what he said, “well, we are now.” Wait….. What? No. I tried to get him to explain how he’s oppressed, he changed the subject. I’m really disappointed that he would ever think to say that, let alone believe it and think it’s okay.

I was informed yesterday that gender doesn’t matter and it is 100% women’s fault anyway because we have been sold a victim mentality by those greedy feminist fatcats!

WHY DIDN’T SOMEONE TELL ME THIS SOONER?!?

From now on, we all get to stand purely on creative merit, you guys!


Hooray!

Also, the NAACP is why racism is a thing!

This information is super helpful!
